WOOT WOOT GG!! I hope you have as much fun as I am.
The two-tone knitting just takes patients. I work a couple of rows and then untwist the yard. Always stagger the carried yard so that the pattern lays flat. Some will also press out when you connect with the material for the lining. There is a also bias that can be applied to help with the shape.
I hope you will post your version when you get your kit going!!
